Canon EP-EX15 Reviews

EP-EX15 Eyepiece Extender is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 126.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real good idea I've always been bothered by smudge marks on the screen of the 5Dii. I saw this on a friend's camera and tried it out. Right after that I ordered one. There is a slight downside in that it is harder to see the bottom information bar and it is slightly harder to use in bright sunlight. Also, there seems to be a slight curvature on the edges. For me, these are overshadowed by the fact that the screen is always clean. If exact perspective and seeing the bottom bar are imperative, you might want to try one out first. But after two or three pictures i can compensate for these minor flaws; Really good for eyeglass wearers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, Less Filling Acquired two EP-EX15 extenders for a 5D and a 30D. It took less than 15 seconds to install. Since I have a giant nose, there are now fewer smudges on the LCD and a reduction in viewfinder magnification. FWIW: Extender in the name of this product means the existing rubber eyecup is removed from the viewfinder, the EP-EX15 is installed and the existing rubber eyecup is attached to the EP-EX15. The EP-EX15 does not come with a new or improved rubber eyecup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from customizable solution This is a good solution to a design flaw of the camera--a view finder that is flush with the back of the camera. Notice that the pro bodies have a built in extension... I miss that about my 1D mark II... I'd like it just the way it is, but I took the advice of another reviewer and removed the plastic lens elements. Just remove the two screws, then take out the two plastic lenses and the metal plate holding the lenses. Screw the eye-piece together without these pieces, and you have an extender that doesn't diminish the magnification of the view finder as much. Also, this mod eliminates glare on the view finder when the sun is to my back. This modification takes a minute at most, and it doesn't take any more time to put it back the way it's supposed to be, if you don't like it. This custom mod. makes the extender fit tighter to the camera, so there is no danger of it falling off. But even without this modification, there is little danger of loosing the eye-piece as some reviewers say. It fits on as tight as the normal eye-piece, and unless you are in the habit of throwing your camera around, it won't get knocked off ever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almost complete useless This extender reduces the size of what you see through the viewfinder moderately! It's very hard to manually focus because you cant see the focus points so clear. I mainly shoot outdoors so you really need to see if the image looks sharp.(When doing portrait you dont need to refocus al the time) The good things about this extender is that it has a good build quality and is cheap. If you don't want to reach the screen with your nosetip you can buy this. But remember that you wont see so good through the viewfinder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from T47 Designs Review This should come with any Canon DSLR as an optional accessory for the consumer. I should have never waited to order this after purchasing my camera. If you have a nose and a Canon you will want this eye extender. I spend significantly less time cleaning my LCD off in between shots and i do not get any visual distortion because my eye is being pushed to the side by my nose which is pressed against the LCD. If you shoot outside and/or wear glasses of any kind you will wonder how you used the camera without an extender. The magnification looks great and in some to most situations improves you view of your subject.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does its job, but hard to adapt to I am having trouble writing this review as I can't decide yet if I'm happy or not with this accessory. You must understand that the small lens inside it will *notably* distort the image in the viewfinder. This is a problem, especially while shooting with wide-angle lenses, as you won't be able to predict the amount of barrel distortion in the final picture. The black frame of the viewfinder can still be used for precise composition, though. After several hours of shooting with it, I stop noticing the distortion, so maybe it's simply something to get used to. But do not believe people that tell you that it just extends the viewfinder without changing the image. It does.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product This product has it's own advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are clear: it does what it meant to do - make some space between the camera and your noise (and as a result reduce the oleaginous layer on the LCD). The disadvantages are also clear: it causes a reduction(of around 30-50%) in the viewfinder. In addition it causes additional barrel distortion (so it is not good for photographing buildings/architecture). I find it very easy to put it on and remove it. Therefore for that price, if you do think it might help you, it worth trying in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Work For Me Bought this to use on a Canon 600D to to get a fuller view of the viewfinder as I wear glasses and to reduce smudges on the LCD (from my nose pressing against it). For me however it really didn't work. The reduction in viewfinder size was too large and the new size way too small to make out necessary detail and on this camera it didn't give enough distance to successfully reduce smudges. The other key issue I found was that being further out seemed allow more light to reflect off my glasses and again affect the viewfinder resolution.
